Pasadena High School
Class Of 1971
Bela(Doreen) Horn Johnson
I have such poignant memories of my beautiful high school friend from Sierra Madre, Cindy Stornie.
In fact I have just finished going through a huge box of memorabilia, searching for her lovely face, but alas, after moving from Maine to Hawaii and back again twice, after two children and so much experience thinning and thinning out again, I have lost her image. And for that, I am sorry. Especially for the Hawaii part, which Cindy would have loved - I remember when she and Gregg Nick invited me to come surfing, or more appropriately watch them surf, and how much fun I had, observing and participating with these two good friends, enjoying a day at the beach. Cindy always longed for the ocean. She was a gentle spirit and moved with grace, calm and beauty. And though we never kept in touch, I remember her vividly, fondly and as if we were still there on the shore that day, talking in low tones with her musical laughter floating out and onto the sea.

I found this picture of Cindy & her family in our 20th PHS reunion book. I think it is very sweet and nice and thought maybe others would like to see it. I heard that Cindy had battled some type of leukemia or lymphoma according to what my mother had told me when she was alive. My parents were very good friends with Martin and Alice Stornie, Cindy's parents. She died I believe sometime in the mid 1990's? Perhaps some other classmates that kept in touch with her and her family may have more details

Cindy died of breast cancer. Her mom still lives in the house in Sierra Madre which is down the street from my family home. Her sister Pam and I do keep in touch from time to time. She was my best friend in elementary school and into junior high. She was such a sweet spirit! Still miss her!
Wow. This is a shock. I actually went steady with Cindy at Wilson Jr High. She was a special person to be sure, and had a smile that lite up the day. My wife is a Breast Cancer survivor so I have intimate knowledge of the condition.
I am sorry to hear this, and my thoughts go out to everyone that knew Cindy.
